Recent Merida reviews
Cool and comfortable
"We enjoyed our stay at Casa la Barenda, good location, air conditioning that worked and everything thing we needed to relax and enjoy. We visited in late July early August and it was hot outside, but we kept it nice and comfortable inside. There were some good maps at the Casa that made it easy for us to get to what we wanted to see. Uxmal and the ruins of the Ruta Puuc are amazing. We visited several nearby museums that were free and air conditioned as well as a day to to the beaches near Progreso . There are good restaurants nearby that can be easily walked to. Only negative was no hot water for the shower and several lights needed to be replace so it was a little dark. Would definitely recommend to friends and would look to return if we get the chance to visit Merida again, we would plan for November to April. The plunge pool was a refreshing relief after walking around town in the heat. The roof deck was another added bonus. The private outdoor space with grill table and ceiling fan was another added plus"

KATHLEEN WHITE'S GUEST HOUSE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE SINGLE TRAVELER AS WELL AS COUPLES
"I stayed at the El Avenue Blanca for one month. April 14 to May 14, 2015. I was there for extensive dental work and was traveling alone. Being a 65 year old woman, it was difficult to stay in a hotel by myself. I would highly recommend this guest house, especially, for people traveling alone. Those who do not speak Spanish and do not know the city.
Kathleen and her family are very nice people. She was informative on places to visit and ways to spend the time I was not seeing the dentist. Also, she was able to call taxis for me - something I could not do myself since I do not speak Spanish.
Her inn is a reasonable place to spend time, and within reasonable walking distance to certain locations. If you stay with her for 1 month, you have your own bedroom and bathroom. You also have use of the kitchen, pool, CD library, garden areas and patios.
It was nice to have other people around me to talk to and share my adventures.
Again, I recommend her guest house for anyone traveling to Merida, Mexico for the first time."

"An unpretentious facade opens into the most beautiful house. Every bit as lovely as the photos, the kitchen is a cooks delight, the bedrooms lovely with comfortable beds and great sheets. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Merida is wonderful as are the people and restaurants. We had no trouble parking in front, so we could drive to wonderful Hacienda Yaxcopoil and to the spectacular ruin Uxmal."

"Just a quick note to offer my most sincere thanks to Mary and Neil!
Mary, your home is impeccable in every capacity! From location (on a lovely quiet street just 2 ½ blocks from the gorgeous Paseo, near restaurants, cafes, shopping and a number of plazas with their music and dancing and churches and museums) to décor (elegant and clean, with enviable fixtures, comfortable amenities and a clean flow from front to back) to the easy livability of the property (a fabulous home that feels like home), we were enchanted with every detail! The back patio was a lovely relaxing retreat where wine flowed and al fresco dining was in order after a long day, walking gorgeous Merida and discovering the many fabulous attractions. The well appointed kitchen is the hub of this lovely house, where meals were prepared using market goods from the many markets within walking distance. Thank you for offering this wonderful home!
And Neil, thank you for your time and service! We appreciated the many tips and the offers of assistance. Thankfully, no assistance was necessary due to the perfection of the house, neighborhood and city. But it was nice to know you were there in the case that we needed you. And indeed, opening up the house and allowing that gorgeous cross-breeze to ventilate meant we didn’t even need to use the fans very often, let alone the AC.
Thank you both! Our stay in Merida was simply perfect!"
